I placed the built price of this bike on here a couple of days ago and it rightly got very hot at £999.99 sparking some healthy debate in the process. Planet X lead the way with bang for buck and this deal raises the bar a little further with this build it yourself option with a £200 discount on the built price, This wont be for everyone but there's nothing like building your own bike once done you know the ins and outs of maintenance and will save yourself so much money in the long run. Its easier than you think with lots of advice on line. When you brake this down its such a good deal the groupset alone is £500 plus elsewhere else.
Its a carbon frame (yes its Chinese as are 90% of carbon frames on the market)
If you can find a better deal anywhere else vote cold and share it.

Great bike for the money. Ultegra is a great groupset. Not got the vision wheels on which are pretty solid at this price but a very comfortable bike to ride. I like the look of the new Maratona frame which looks to be a stiffer frame as it's t800 and newer design. That was worth a look if you can go to a £1000 (looks like it's gone up in price again to £1299 now?) but equipped with 105 although I would personally prefer the Maratona grand with 105 than the older style pro carbon with ultegra.

Lots of armchair cyclists poo-pooing this bike. Don't know why people have bothered trolling such a bargain. These are excellent bikes. I know I have one!!!

Why because they are struggling? U.K. Business need support or we will loose them.
I'd buy from them if I needed a n+1

They're losing customers due to shoddy customer service and DFS / Sports Direct model of business - nonsense RRPs and different sales every day of the week. I don't think the cycling industry works like that, particularly as they have devalued their brand and brand is everything in that industry.

If you want a carbon frame for not much money (relative) then I'd recommend doing your homework and go direct - its very simple these days.

Then a plane!
At least that's what the MOD adverts say.

I've voted hot because it's a great deal and because I have considered building my own bike but.... The average person wouldn't have the correct tools to go ahead with this. I like a spot of DIY I have even built my own PC so I'm not hopeless and feel I could do this however some of the tools required are not cheap.

As these bikes are shipped unassembled you will require certain bike tools to complete assembly. An allen key set, BB wrench, torque wrench, cassette lockring tool, headset press, hacksaw and fork cutting guide chain tool/pliers and cable cutters should be considered an absolute minimum.

BB Wrench, Torque Wrench, Cassette Lockring Tool, Headset Press, Fork Cutting Guide and Chain Tool. I challenge many to have those in their toolbox, what are we talking, minimum of £120 to in excess of £200 of tools.

On another note, why can't they just put the gear and brake cables, ferrules and rim tape in with it, why purchase separate?

Do it ristac! I have stripped down many bikes with a workshop toolkit that cost about £35 and a few you tube videos (never used a torque wrench), you can get your local bike shop to cut forks for less than £10. If you are saving £200, then if you put it together and took it to the LBS and got them to set it up, you'd probably only pay for a couple of hours of manpower i.e. £30. Even if you spent £100 on tools, help and bits, you're still saving £100 and you then got a full tool kit to do any future repairs.

P.S. i know several people riding Planet X bikes and can't speak highly enough of them. Personally i have a Ribble - which is a similar kind of company

Heat. I had a pro carbon /ultegra 6800 frame as a winter build (cost around £1000) Good bike even better groupset but the frame was quite flexy. I'm 93kg though so definitely on the heavier side and all my effort was going into the frame. Sold it in the end.

I think this is a hot deal. Love my pro carbon. Have bought a bike from them recently that wasn't put together well so this would fix that problem...

Have you read it? The CEO goes on about record high sales but they're getting rid of half the staff and using an agency.

Yes I read it, shock horror a company wants to use flexible staff to cut prices due to customers demanding cheaper and cheaper bikes!
Now tell which ethical bike manufacturer you buy from ?

They made redundancies but are using a recruitment firm?

Sounds like outsourcing to me.
